Center for Constitutional Democracy Speaker: Rick Welch
This presentation will describe Rick’s recent experience in Iraq from June 2018 through July 2019 as country manager for the United States Institute of Peace, implementing peace-building and conflict-resolution programs throughout Iraq aimed at resolving tribal conflicts and reforming tribal practices that destabilize communities and erode rule of law and state institutions; assisting return of and protection of minority communities post-ISIS; leading community reconciliation and strengthening social cohesion; preventing radicalization of conflict-affected women and youth through community reintegration; increasing capacity of minority communities to advocate for better representation and good governance in local, provincial, and national institutions; and building capacity in government and non-government organizations to effectively identify issues, develop solutions, and implement programs that prevent violent conflict within communities or among ethno-religious groups.
It is the aim of the presentation to demonstrate the inherent and close interconnection between peace-building and conflict resolution in deeply-divided societies and effective constitutional and institutional design. Likewise, the presentation will show the challenges presented to peace-building and conflict resolution efforts in deeply-divided societies that are created, or at least exacerbated, by weak, inept or corrupt institutions, a flawed constitution, and weak or selective enforcement of law.
